[Announcing] Erin Hanson: The Sunflower Collection

Sunflowers through the Lens of Impressionism

Saturday, May 14, 2022

Oregon-based contemporary impressionist Erin Hanson is poised to release a brand-new painting collection focused on the ever-luminous bloom, the sunflower. The Sunflower Collection is an ode to the impressionists who came before her, including Monet and van Gogh, who celebrated the beauty of sunflowers in their iconic paintings.

This sunflower collection will include paintings of cut flowers in vases, wildflower blooms, and cultivated fields of sunflowers. Hanson has been an avid fan of impressionism since she was a young child when she experienced van Gogh’s painting Irises in person and discovered that a painting could be more colorful than nature. Van Gogh’s works, as well as paintings of other early impressionists and post-impressionists, have shaped and fueled Hanson’s ambition to flood the world with natural beauty as seen through the lens of impressionism.

ERIN HANSON has been painting in oils since she was 8 years old. As a young artist, she worked at a mural studio creating 40-foot-tall paintings on canvas, while selling art commissions on the side. After getting a degree in Bioengineering from UC Berkeley, Erin became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Inspired by the colorful scenery she was climbing, she decided to paint one painting every week for the rest of her life. She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide. With thousands of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism.
